Who should the Minnesota Vikings be eyeing up with their nine picks in the 2019 NFL Draft now that the needs of the team are starting to come to light?
The 2018 season may only be approximately half over, but that doesn’t mean it’s too early to start looking ahead to the 20198 NFL Draft to see how the Minnesota Vikings can improve their team to be competitive again.
By now, the team is starting to shake out the kinks and the needs of the franchise going forward are starting to become more obvious. For that reason, matching up players who may be available on draft day can be a lot of fun.
The Vikings are projected to have nine picks in the 2019 NFL Draft assuming they don’t deal any more picks away. Here are the selections the team will be expected to have (note: original team picks are in bold):
- Round 1
- Round 2
- Round 3
- Round 3 (Projected Compensatory – Case Keenum)
- Round 4
- Round 6
- Round 6 (Projected Compensatory – Teddy Bridgewater)
- Round 7 (Projected Compensatory – Tramaine Brock)
- Round 7 (Projected Compensatory – Shamar Stephen)
